Swedish National Cinnamon Roll Day: How to Bake Cinnamon Rolls

It’s National Cinnamon Roll Day in Sweden, and why not?

Swedish flagOoey, gooey goodness of fresh, soft bread rolled up with cinnamon, raisins and a glaze icing. What’s not to like. Of course, they would love them in Sweden!

They’re not difficult to make, so try these rolls out.

How to Bake Cinnamon Rolls:

Delightful and soft, I have a super tasty cinnamon roll recipe as follows.

Type: Bread Recipe

Serve with: tea or coffee
Prep Time: 3 min
Toast Time: 2-3 min
Serves: 24 rolls


  • Thompson Seedless Select Raisins1 1/4 cups milk
  • 3/4 cup shortening
  • 3 tbsp warm water
  • 3 1/2 tsp dry yeast
  • 3/4 cup + 2/3 cup sugar + 3 tsp sugar
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 2/3 cups all purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 3 tsp ground cinnamon
  • raisins – if desired


  1. To prepare dough, on low heat, in a medium pot, stir shortening until it melts in milk.
  2. In a large bowl, allow yeast to bloom using warm water and adding sugar and stirring.
  3. Beat milk mixture into yeast preparation, adding 3/4 cup sugar, eggs and salt.
  4. Add flour and beat dough for 5-6 minutes. Place in an oiled bowl.
  5. Cover & refrigerate about 12 hours.
  6. Divide dough in half and roll out to about 12 inches x 14 inches each.
  7. Brush each rectangle with 3 tbsp butter.
  8. Sprinkle each rectangle with 1/3 cup sugar and 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon.
  9. Roll each piece from longer side to longer side.
  10. Slice into 2 1/2 inch pieces, and place on greased cookie sheet.
  11. Brush tops with egg wash and allow rolls to rise until double in size – about 1 1/2 – 1 3/4 hrs.
  12. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  13. Bake in middle of oven at reduced heat of 350 degrees F until lightly browned – about 15 min. * Tip: Do NOT burn. So, check often.
  14. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Ice with loose icing, so it flows over edges of rolls.

Serve with tea or coffee.
